Hi there
remember also with some of the streaming services they check your location too so even if you can install the application it won't necessarily work.

However by using a Proxy you can "Get round" that little inconvenience. I use a proxy so I can have "Sky GO" wherever I am -- if you've ever watched Belgian or French TV it's a guaranteed cure for insomnia. !!

An interesting FREE APP ( although it starts with a 20 sec commercial) but gives you a load of UK Freeview TV channels is one called "TV Catchup" which isn't actually Catchup but a TV streaming application of the UK Freeview channels. This also needs a proxy to make it work outside the UK but with 4G on a phone or decent fast broadband -- not an issue.

Cheers
jimbo
